I’m hoping you will not let the Holidays drive you crazy. I have decided to not get stressed out, even though it’s looking like I will need some knee surgery next month. Not looking forward to that, but it will be great to have a working knee again! Anyway, take it easy and be kind to yourself.

A Very Short Video for you: Easy Bobbin Stitching
Roxane Recommends: The Rock Your Quilting Retreat
Do you have thread envy? How do you know if you have thread envy? Well, if you’ve ever drooled over a sparkly, quilted piece with beautiful even stitching, you might have thread envy. If you have stood in awe gaping at amazing texture with heavy and colorful threads, you probably have thread envy. Whats that you say? How the heck do you make it look like that? I know you’re thinking, “I only have boring old cotton thread. Ok maybe I have some rayon and variegated thread, but nothing Iike that gorgeous sparkly, shiny stuff.”
Because I don’t want you to succumb completely to thread envy, I have created this short video tute to show you how to incorporate those really yummy threads into your quilting. And don’t worry if you only do straight line quilting, the same steps will apply. And just so you know, this is one of the many skills I teach in the Rock Your Quilting Workshop. More about the workshop down below. But first, the video!
Also, this just in…I am published in this fine magazine. Take a look.
The Rock Your Quilting Retreat!!!!
I’m so very excited to offer the same workshop I did in October as a fabulous 1 weekend retreat here in Benson, North Carolina. Our host will be award winning chef, Penny Prichard. She will be opening up her gorgeous 100 year old restored home for us to stay in, and cooking fabulous meals for us. So let everyone in your life know that you want THIS for Christmas, because we will be so pampered and be having fun learning and sewing. For now all you need to know is it will be January 11, 12, and 13. Stay tuned for all the details coming soon……
And here is what Nora worked on during the last Rock Your Quilting Workshop. Look at that dimensional free motion quilting! Isn’t that stunning?
